Two Challenges in One

I needed a birthday card for a little boy and I'd be lying if I said I was happy with the way this one turned out (i nearly didn't post this at all) but you have good days and bad days. For this card I have worked with the colours from Keesha's Colour Challenge and Nerine's layout challenge at Stampin' Addiction. I tried to make the "wish big" sparkle to match the tops of the candles but mmmm. I think I need to restart again!!!

Makeesha's Sketch Challenge No 1 2009

Here is my attempt for Makeesha's first challenge for the year. Keesh's blog is one of my favourite and I really hope to be able to participate in some of her challenges this year. So, for this card, I finally got to play with my latest stamp set "One of a Kind". I have used the colours Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Pretty in Pink, Mellow Moss and Whisper White for this card, a couple of silver brads and some white ribbon.

It's my girlfriend Tina's birthday this week so this card is for her. I hope you like it and I hope she does too. Here is the link to Keesha's blog for this challenge. There are some great cards being made for this challenge so check them all out.

Christmas Morning 2008

Hi Everyone, I hope you had a great Christmas and New Year. Just thought I'd post a pic of our kids on Christmas morning next to the Christmas tree with all the pressies (they are not all for them, although they did quite well) at our holiday house on Fraser Island. I am hoping to still get the chance to post occasionally although things have been pretty busy lately. I hope you all have a fantastic 2009. Chook xx
